Here’s hoping your New Year’s Eve was happy and safe and your New Year will be a prosperous one.
I had intended to sit down and write a whole bunch of entries yesterday, but ended up driving out to my brother’s to take another whack at the kid’s PCs as they’re still acting a little flaky. Ended up bringing my niece’s home with me so I could do a complete rebuild from the ground up as it is crashing randomly on us with just about every application installed. Sometimes it’s best to just scrap it and start over from step one and see if the second time around doesn’t work out better. I’m rather disappointed to find that the DVD/CD-RW drives we put in the kid’s machines are incompatible with some copy protection schemes out there. We bought my nephew a copy of Call of Duty for Christmas and the single player won’t run on his system because the Rosewill drive chokes when checking the protection. I just verified with my niece’s PC that it has the same problem so it’s the drive that’s the culprit. The multiplayer works fine because it doesn’t require a CD check. So I’ll be working on my niece’s PC throughout the day today.
I’ll also be trying to get back into posting more entires. I’ve got a Christmas wrap-up entry I’ve been kicking around to put on the site and I’ve got a lot of current events to catch up on. Hopefully you’re not all too hung over to visit the site today.
